In a separate large saucepan, combine the clams and the remaining ingredients except the lemon juice. Cook covered over medium heat for about 5 minutes until clams open. Discard any clams that didn't open. Take the clams out of their shells and chop into chunks. Then add the clams and the cooking liquid to the pasta/broccoli mixture. Add the lemon juice and combine well.

The alcohol in wine evaporates when cooking so there would be any left after five minutes.
